Corbin Victory Motorcycle SaddleCorbin’s Dual Tour saddle for the Victory Vision is designed to look right and fit perfect while providing exceptional comfort and enhancements for your touring cruiser.
For the Vision, Corbin put the emphasis on “Touring” and fully maximized the seating platforms for best possible weight distribution. Its ergonomically designed shape gives you support and comfort that last all day. On the inside, Corbin’s exclusive Comfort Cell foam material gives firm body support that conforms to your body.A host of options like backrests and seat heaters make this saddle extremely versatile too. Dual Touring Saddle accepts two optional removable rider’s backrests for added back support. Our backrests are fully adjustable to provide a tailored fit to individual’s posture. In the front, we’ve engineered a second adjustment that allows the position of the rest to be adjusted fore/aft.This special hardware also allows the backrest to fold down to ease mounting the bike. Saddle works with a variety of backrest styles. You can use a single backrest that transfers front to back as needed or get two backrests for full time use. Installation is easy enough to make this possible at a moment’s notice.Like the saddle, Corbin backrests are shaped to fit the curve of your body for a better fit and greater comfort. Corbin’s Dual Tour saddle will also work with the Victory trunk &/or passenger backrest system. A coordinated 2-piece trunk pad is also available. The ergonomic design of the Dual Touring saddle also gives a nice flowing shape on the bike for a clean look.Inside the saddle, Corbin’s Comfort Cell foam provides a nice firm perch that supports your body indefinitely and doesn’t cave in like softer materials. Comfort Cell Cell feels firm when you first ride on it, but it is this support that gives you daylong comfort. Notice also, the amount of vertical support offered by the bucket design of the Corbin saddle… over 5.5″ of vertical support or 16″ with a backrest installed! Corbin’s Dual Tour saddle is available with or without electric seat heaters built in. This option provides a very nice bit of luxury especially on those chilly morning rides. If you’ve never ridden on a heated seat, you’ll be amazed at how well this raises riding comfort.On the Corbin saddle, they’ve separated the switches and placed each one conveniently along the left side of the seating platform. This makes them very easy to locate while riding and with gloved hands. Simple installation with the Corbin saddle plugging right into your Victory seat heater wiring. Low and High settings are maintained automatically with integrated heater. (Dual Tour Saddle w/ Heat-$799 Saddle w/ No Heat-$599.00, Trunk Pad-$282 and Ovalbac Leather Backrest-$229)Corbin only uses genuine leather seating panels for a luxurious ride that breathes with your body. Leather is extremely durable and will break in along with the foam shape to conform to your body. Over time, your leather saddle will develop its own unique character just like your leather jacket does.For those interested in obtaining more information on Corbin, you can reach them at 800-538-7035 or online at corbin.com.

Hello everyone and welcome once again to Motos and Friends—the weekly Podcast brought to you by the editorial team at Ultimate Motorcycling.
My name is Arthur Coldwells.
In this week’s first segment, Senior Editor Nic de Sena rides the much anticipated Yamaha MT-10 SP. That’s the model with the Ohlins semi-active suspension. It’s only been available in Europe for the last couple of years, but finally the good news is, that it’s coming to America. The big question is, whether the extra 3k you’re going to have to pony up for the Ohlins is actually worth it, or perhaps there’s just not that much improvement over the stock KYB suspension that has suited the Yamaha MT-10 so well until now?
In the second segment, Associate Editor Teejay Adams chats with Val Collins. Val grew up on motorcycles and learned to love speed, however her real love is Formula 1 tunnel-boat racing. These are the guys and gals that are strapped into a tiny cockpit and then hurtle down the straights at 120 mile per hour and pull 5G in the corners. We attended the recent season finale in Lake Havasu and watched our friend Mike Quindazzi try to take the win. Val chats with Teejay about her love for two-wheels and tunnel-boats. Yeah, it’s crazy stuff.
From all of us here at Ultimate Motorcycling, we hope you enjoy this episode and have a great Thanksgiving Holiday!
